Hotel Baker Wedding Venue
In 1928 when Hotel Baker opened, it was one of the most modern hotels in America. No expense was spared as it went through designing and construction. Today this incredible historical building has undergone a thorough restoration and offers a very unique wedding venue.
Located on the river with incredible views of St Charles, it is hard to beat the ambience around the building. The garden and pathways to the outdoor ceremony site is a dream.
Outdoor ceremonies have the river as the backdrop. The trees offer wonderful shade in on warm days and lovely colors in the fall. It’s hard to beat the view here during ceremonies and the walk to the ceremony site offers a wonderful opportunity for candid moments.
The reception room and dance floor are definitely unique. How many venues have a built in bottom lit dance floor and a wonderful oval shape. Add a two tier seating layout and you get a wonderful room for intimate ceremonies and stunning receptions.
The staff, the food and the whole ambience of Hotel Baker is hard to beat. I have photographed so many venues over many years and this remains one of my all time favorites. I have had couples who are getting married here do their engagement photos at and around the hotel, because the whole area is just so photogenic.
Here are some favorite photos of mine from Hotel Baker.
